Just spoken to the venue - bring cash if you intend to buy drinks as their card machine is not yet set up - venue is under new ownership!
The night is coming together nicely & is now twinned with the Liverpool Tester Gathering (http://www.meetup.com/agiletesting/events/36503252/)!
As well as networking & a (limited) kitty behind the bar, we also have :
Why are we here? Duncan Nisbet
Welcome to the first Liverpool STC meetup / Tester Gathering (http://www.meetup.com/agiletesting/events/36503252/).
Whats that smell? Stuart Taylor
How Test Teams are perceived in a negative light & how we as Testers need to re-educate the masses & behave appropriately in order to get the positive recognition we deserve.
Testing The Time Machine -
How Marty could have tested the Delorean had he not been interrupted by Libyan terrorists
A (brief!) introduction to exploratory testing, the use of heuristics & how they can compliment a scripted testing approach.
We'll then apply what we know about exploratory testing & follow a heuristic in order to help Marty test the Delorean.
P.S. Having watched Back To The Future isn't a prerequisite!
The value of certification in the software testing industry
We'd like to discuss certification in software testing & peoples views on the value that certification provides to the individuals, companies & recruitment consultants.
We have a nice spread of people attending, including those doing the recruiting, those doing the applying & those people stuck in the middle!
